OSWEGO, N.Y. – Ever wonder how nuclear power is generated or how a nuclear power plant works? If you attend Exelon Generation’s Community Information Night, you’ll find answers to these questions and many more. You’ll also see firsthand how the James A. FitzPatrick Nuclear Power Plant and Nine Mile Point Nuclear Station are safely producing energy in Oswego County to power nearly 2.5 million area homes. The free event will be held at Nine Mile Point’s Training Center on Thursday, Sept. 28 from 4-7 p.m.
Plant employees will be on hand to inform visitors on plant operations, maintenance, engineering practices, environmental stewardship, radiological safety, emergency preparedness and much more. Visitors can also tour one of the control room simulators, which is used for training reactor operators. Gannon’s Ice Cream will provide free tasty treats. Members of the public may register online at https://exgencommunityinfonight.eventbrite.com
Community Information Nights are an important part of Exelon Generation’s annual public information and outreach campaign, designed to engage and educate the public on plant operations. Throughout the year, our employees are active in the community; volunteering, hosting tours, visiting area schools, appearing at community events and financially supporting dozens of civic and charitable organizations.
The Nine Mile Point Station and James A. FitzPatrick Nuclear Power Plant are located seven miles northeast of Oswego and 50 miles north of Syracuse. Nine Mile Point can produce more than 1,947 megawatts of carbon-free electricity – enough to power nearly two million homes. The 838-megawatt FitzPatrick Plant generates carbon-free electricity for more than 800,000 homes. Follow FitzPatrick on Facebook
